Tejeda getting closer to resuming pitching

CLEVELAND -- Royals reliever Robinson Tejeda's left calf, which he pulled last Friday, is improving and he might be ready to resume pitching by this weekend against Colorado.

"He's getting better every single day, so I look in terms of him being ready, hopefully, when we get home," manager Ned Yost said.

Tejeda, who did not go on the disabled list, has allowed just one run in his last 13 2/3 innings. A streak of 12 consecutive scoreless innings ended the last time he pitched, last Thursday against Cleveland.
